Ambient temperature sensing

Hi Folks,

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with ambient temperature sensing. I know you can monitor the temperature of the Zynq chip and that there's the extension board that the Grove temperature sensor is compatible with, but I'm looking for something more compact. Perhaps something that can be installed on the main board? Apologies if this is a naive question!

I am using the impedance analyzer extension board already, so both of my input channels are in use.

Hi Addie!

Since you have 4 analog inputs available on the Extension Connector E2, it is possible to use them to read analog voltages from 0V to 3.5V (). Then, you can use temperature sensors such as TMP36 or LM35. It is a straightforward process. Take a look here for more information about how to read analog voltage on slow analog input.

Best regards!
